Head Unit Power Pack Now Available

TORRANCE, Calif., May 12, 2009 – Consumers who desire better sound quality from their car audio system may not always want a full-blown system overhaul. Alpine Electronics of America, Inc., the industry-leading manufacturer of automotive mobile media solutions, answers this need with the KTP-445 Head Unit Power Pack, which is now available in stores.

An easy, cost-effective upgrade, the Head Unit Power Pack enables consumers to upgrade the power of their system and improve the sound performance of their head unit. It measures a slim 6 inches x 2 inches x 1.125 inches and is designed to fit neatly behind the dash in most vehicles. Its direct plug-and-play application does not need additional wiring or tuning. The KTP-445 connects to any 2005 and newer Alpine head unit that has a black power harness.

The KTP-445 boosts the original power from a head unit’s typical built-in amplifier and increases it to a 45W RMS x 4 output at CEA-2006 Power Ratings. Its advanced digital design delivers extremely clean power, making the bass tighter and highs clearer. The unit’s high efficiency digital technology keeps it running cool in even the most exertive conditions and minimizes drain on the vehicle’s battery. A high/low gain switch allows for proper gain settings, whether or not a subwoofer is part of the system.

“The Head Unit Power Pack is a unique product that easily improves sound quality,” said Stephen Witt, vice president, marketing, Alpine Electronics. “Consumers get a power boost at an attractive price point without sacrificing any trunk or storage space.”
